Hussein Dey won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-1 Ligue Professionnelle 1 defeat in their last game at the hands of Olympique Médéa.
It has not been often in recent games that Hussein Dey have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Nasria have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 8 goals along the way. We will just have to see whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
Taking a look at their past results, Hussein Dey:
- are unbeaten in the league by Bel-Abbès in their last 6 matches.
- have not won against Bel-Abbès in their last 4 league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 2 league matches.
In their previous game, Bel-Abbès drew 0-0 in the Ligue Professionnelle 1 tie with Paradou.
Si Cherif el Ouazani's Bel-Abbès have seen their goal attempts be successful a total of 5 times in the course of their previous 6 matches. The total of goals that have been scored against them during that period adds up to 8.
Leading up to this clash, Bel-Abbès:
- have not beaten Hussein Dey when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 2 league games.

Mounir Ait L'Hadi (Unknown Injury), Faouzi Yaya (Collarbone fracture), Mohamed Amine Bouziane (Bruise) and Mohamed Seddik Mokrani (Shoulder Injury) are not available for Hussein Day manager Bilel Dziri.
Team News: Bel-Abbès
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, Bel-Abbès boss Si Cherif el Ouazani has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash.
Our feeling is that Bel-Abbès are certainly able to score a goal against this Hussein Dey lineup, although that probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Our selection here is for a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Hussein Dey after the 90. It should be a decent one.
